“Almost Like The Old Days”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

Friendly employees, many delicious ice cream choices. The game-toy-cool stuff part of this establishment was untidy and poorly stocked. No water fountain to wet my whistle after downing my dark chocolate ice cream. Nice selection of board games to try out.

“Great stop! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Great little soda fountain tucked away in a strip mall. Ice cream sundaes were wonderful, and the soda jerks were very nice. Made for a nice stop on the way south

“Old time charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

Want to experience an old time soda fountain / hangout place / non-electronic game store? Then this is the place for you.

I quickly chose my ice cream flavor from their wide assortment, only to find out that they have even more choices of sundaes, including a "sushi" plate and the kitchen sink challenge, which comes in a real sink.

The good news is that we'll be coming back to Tallassee often, so I'll have the opportunity to return and try these enticing options.

“Not so hype worthy.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

People around here are all hyped up on this place, and granted, it had pretty good ice cream, and some pretty decent flavors, and presents it in a neat way, I don't think that it is all that and a box of chocolate. I went expecting more of a vintage feel to the place, and found out that it looks just like any ice cream shop on the inside.

“Awesome & worth the time to stop.. everytime!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

This place is fantastic! I'd rather go here once than DQ 5 times. It's an old fashion styled shop, complete with glass dishes and real silverware. There is always a new and interesting ice cream to try, usually made even better with their freshly made ganache.
